It may not have been singing in the dead of night but it certainly had something to say! And these birds can say what they say at the top of their lungs.

    Red winged blackbird. We do not have blackbirds here in Australia, crows and ravens galore but not the tuneful blackbird.

    • They may be tuneful but they’re also very loud! 🙂 Thanks for the visit and comment, Andrew. Always appreciated.

        Yes. I remember their black brothers. The Rooks are raucous in the early morning. One lived in the tree at the bottom of the garden until a pair of African myners chased it away the are quite sooky despite their size.

    A well dressed bird – with the flair of the dramatic. A touch of red is always right!

  6. He’s a beauty! Great image, Janet!

  7. de Wets Wild says:

    He’s obviously quite enthusiastic about the content of his monologue!

  8. When I saw one, it was quiet…good to to know they are talkative 🙂

  9. Ally Bean says:

    Pretty and noisy. Probably the best way to be a bird!
